I'm not very familiar with GIT, although my understanding is that it has
advantages related to branching and also a nice regression test feature.

Also, for distributors for Debian, it seems to be useful since the Debian
package can be considered a branch from official GRUB in the SCM itself.

Anyway, I find CVS very awkward to work with.  I tend to agree with Otavio
that a change would be a good thing (be it to git, svn...).

Just my 0.02.
